This afternoon, some 400 chaps and ladies dressed in Tweed and suitable attire took a merry jaunt around London, and I wandered over to take some photos.

I was actually planning to be a cyclist and dutifully marked the website to book tickets on the release date – not realising that all 400 places would sell out in about an hour, so missed out. Not bad though for what is only the second year of the event!

I managed to catch them coming into Trafalgar Square, and then took the underground train round to South Kensington and remarkably managed to beat them to the picnic stop in Kensington Gardens, so was able to get more photos there.

Nothing much to add, just some photos to show off.

Here are my favourites, and the full collection, as usual on my Flickr account.

Oh, and thanks to BoingBoing for featuring the event on their front page – it resulted in a considerable amount of traffic to this website overnight. Hello new people!

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
